I use networkX all the time for my research in Food Webs in mathematical
ecology. I find that networkX in nice for both creating algorithms that walk
digraphs, so that I can calculate different food web statistics, as well as
using the many built in network theory metrics so I can reproduce the
results from the literature.

Is this what you where looking for? I can be more specific . . .
